The dancing teacher Anastasia falls in love with the smart theatre agent Jud. He likes her, too, but does not want to give up his solo life at all. Thus she plans a trap for him... Written by
In "The Big Hangover," Liz is the boss' beautiful daughter; in "Conspirator," she's an immature young wife in love; in "The Girl Who Had Everything," she's the daughter of a wealthy criminal lawyer, but in "Love Is Better Than Ever," she is a young dance school teacher from New Haven who comes to the big city for a convention and falls for a smart talent agent
In these four films, Taylor is cast as the innocent who selects the wrong guy and the unlucky beauty in a classic mismatch
In both "Love Is Better Than Ever" and "The Girl Who Had Everything," she's a spirited young lady with a mind of her own In the former, she defies her small-town upbringing as she romances a city swindler In the latter, she challenges her father in order to run off with a bon vivant with underworld connections In "Conspirator," the misfortune girl marries a Communist In "The Big Hangover," she's engaged to a man with a drinking problem And in "Elephant Walk," her husband is a wealthy and potent planter with a really bad temper
These five ladies are variations on the young innocent star who thinks she knows more than she does In each movie, she has to be educated The wildly careless spirit has to be limited and corrected
In "Love Is Better Than Ever," Liz is even more provincial, an innocent tempted but never corrupted by big city frivolous amusement, a teasing beauty who falls for a cheerful bachelor... Liz is once again the determined pursuer, setting her sights on a man who does not want to marry Shameless and stubborn, she decides to announce her engagement, hoping that fiction may stimulate fact
